This month those hopping along are showing off creative ways of using flowers with our counterfeit kits for July. Now my entry in the hop is about Christmas, and no, I wasn't trying to do the whole "Christmas in July" thing...it just happened that way! I was inspired by one of the Gallery Idol participant's take on the current fabric challenge for the Top 10. She did embroidery with the help of this great stitch tutorial. To make a long story short, I figured the same could be done with crinkle ribbon, or in my case, lace trim!
So in the bottom right is my take on the flower challenge. I did the lazy daisy stitch with the help of drawing a circle on the layout and punching holes with my Big Bite. I then threaded the lace ribbon in petals of the flowers. I finished the flowers off with some fun Christmas brads. On top of that, I used the Twisted Sketches #111 sketch from this week as my inspiration for my layout.
And there you have it. Thanks for stopping by. Your next stop is off to Glinda's Blog!
